A Blessed Easter to All

Today is Easter Sunday... the day that Mary went to the tomb early in the morning, while it was still dark, to find that it was empty. And she ran to the disciples and told them that Jesus' body had been taken from the tomb.

Peter then went to the tomb with another disciple and they saw only the shroud that Jesus' body had been wrapped in and the linen that had been around His head was in a place by itself. And Peter and the other disciple thought also that Jesus' body had been stolen, as they were not aware that He would be resurrected and they went to their homes, heartbroken.

However, Mary remained in the Garden and wept outside the tomb. Then she saw two angels in the sepulchre and one sat at the head and the other at the feet of where Jesus had lain. And the angels asked Mary why she wept and Mary answered, "They have taken my Lord away and I know not where they have taken Him."

Then Mary turned and saw Jesus standing there but she knew Him not, instead thinking He was the gardener. And she asked him if he had removed Jesus' body and if so, where had he laid him.
And Jesus said to her, "Mary." And then she knew Him.

But Jesus warned her not to touch Him because He had not yet ascended to the Father, God.

And Mary left the Garden and went to the disciples and told them what she had witnessed, that she had seen the Lord and she told them what He had said to her.

From the King James Bible:
John 20:19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

John 20:20 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side.
Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the LORD.

The Lord is Risen. Let us be glad and rejoice. Happy Easter to All ~Blessings, Mary~

  8. Well darn. I had a whole nice comment left here and clicked publish and then the message came up "connection timed out" So, gotta start over....

    Now where was I? I did say that I loved your wonderful blog for this extra special day. And the graphic you chose is super!!!

    Then, I said that hubby and I watched a fantastic program last night on CNN about the history of Jesus...lots of good stuff. One that always puzzled me is "just how the REAL Jesus looked". And one scientist/dr. did an experiment of one Jewish human skull from that period and took his computer program and added features and all turned out just like I had Him pictured. I never could figure out why the paintings and sculptures were so indifferent to his kind...but that is art I guess. Anyway, one awesome program.

    Have a super afternoon dear Mary. I just now got some photos up on my blog of the amaryllis.


  9. Wasn't it so typical of the men not to believe the women and to have to go and see for themselves.

    Praise God, He lives!!!

    Blessings on your day,
    Mama Bear
